Love is in the Air Blog Hop!

Welcome to my Blog and the Love Is In The Air Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting Kristy,you're in the right place. If you were just looking at my blog and want to play along with our blog hopping fun, you can start at the beginning at www.crossmyhearpapercrafts.blogspot.com. This blog hop is all about love themed ideas..

I LOVE Valentines Day! Obviously, not only because pink is my FAVORITE color ever, but because I love all the sweet little gestures my husband gives me throughout the month! :) We usually don't ever get to celebrate on the actual holiday, but this year we are blessed that he has some time on his hands that we will get to actually celebrate on Valentines Day!

My first card was inspired by a "bee mine" stamp from the dollar bin at Michaels. I love Create a Critter cart and thought this would be perfect! I didn't have a heart background, so I made my own by stamping some hearts and embossing them! How cute is that?

**I'm NOT very coordinated which is why my "faux" stitching can sometimes look off!**

My 2nd card was inspired by a fellow scrapper Samantha (her link is drawing a blank..if I remember it I will include it later!) but since I didn't have her stamp set, I came up with my own idea :) I love the Mini Monograms carts and use it for scalloped circles all the time and this is where this came from. I used Lyrical Letters to weld LOVE together :D

Hope you enjoyed my projects! It's a two day hop so make sure you follow! Also, I LOVE followers! :D

  15. The cards are both sweet! We have 3 kids and can rarely celebrate on the 14th either ... but when you have a great husband 365 days of the year, it doesn't really matter.
